API: Find previous submissions and select one to create and prepopulate a form

    Asked on January 11, 2018 at 04:04 PM

    Let's say I have 2 forms: form1 and form2. Both have previous submissions. I'd like to build something where I can find all submissions for form1 using a field and place the results in dropbox1, then find a field in form2 submissions and place it in dropbox2. The user can then make a selection in the 2 dropboxes. From these selections, i'd like to use the data in the chosen submissions to pre-populate a 3rd form.

    Is there an app that does this? If I have to build this through API, do you have a sample I can copy and modify?

    Unfortunately we have no app or widget that can do this. So it looks like you would have to code this behavior yourself.

    The API page is:


    You can send an email to api@jotform.com
